Practising karate is an excellent opportunity to take part in a cultural activity, and
to study an ancient art, while obtaining valuable skills in self-defence. It gives you
the chance to take your mind off things, while engaging in a completely different activity.
At the Curtin University Karate Club, the style of karate we practise is Shito-Ryu. Our Tai Shin Kan school
is an off-shoot of the Shobukan Association.
Literally translated, Tai Shin Kan means "Self New School",
but its more precise meaning is:
"School To Train Towards An Empowered New Self".
Our club teaches a traditional style of karate, but also places an emphasis on covering all aspects
of karate, namely:
We also familiarise ourselves with knowledge and methods from other styles and martial arts, to complement our own.
- Fitness to build a stronger body and mind
- Self defence techniques, aimed at getting out of real-life situations in one piece
- Traditional weapons
- Exploring oriental intrinsic / metaphysical training
- Learning martial strategies
